- We can order this
This book utilizes Foucault's thinking about the practice of government to analyze how the parent is made responsible for educating the child in the name of freedom. It maps the rationality of freedom as a formula for power to govern the conduct of parents by fabricating the responsible parent that makes deviant 'others' as those who act outside the limits of certain prescribed actions.
